Garden Supply Donations - The new VES garden could use some supplies to help beautify the space. Items such as decorative pieces, a bench, some form of box to keep supplies in, gardening gloves for students, gardening mats if anyone wants to kneel down, etc. Any gently-used, donated items along these lines would be greatly appreciated! THANK YOU!
